There’s nothing like turning 30 that makes you re-evaluate your skin care routine. For some reason the very same day you turn 30, you start analyzing your face and suddenly you see lines possibly forming or your skin doesn’t look as fresh and vibrant as it did last year. Panic (or old lady nerves) sets in and the previously laughable notion of Botox now is a viable option.
Thankfully, dermatologists have narrowed down the essential vitamins needed to help restore and maintain our youthful glow. At the top of the list is Vitamin C. There’s a whole rundown of all the benefits of Vitamin C, but all we really care about is that it helps with collagen production and hyperpigmentation.
I’ve been using them for about a year contentiously now and my skin looks better than it did 5 years ago (ahem..I get carded on a regular basis these days). Here are 4 of my favorite products that contain Vitamin C for a glowing complexion.
from left to right(top): Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster, $48- lightweight, but powerful this is great for underneath your makeup routine in the morning. Don’t forget the sunscreen!
Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Avanced Brightening Sleeping Facial, $48- slather this cream before you go to bed and wake up with radiant and soft skin.
from left to right (bottom): Intensive C Radiance Peel, $49.50- need an instant boost of radiance? Murad has you covered with this easy and quick peel with fast results.
Neutrogena Visibly Bright Facial Cleanser, $7.49- a great cleanser to add to your daily routine–non-drying and rinses clean.
